Telephone Call (Posted on 2003-06-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Jim wants to call his friend Bob. Bob's Phone number is 976-6419. Jim dialed this number perfectly but then ended up calling the wrong house. He tried again and dialed the number perfectly. Once again his call didn't go through, in fact his call never went through to Bob.

Why couldn't Jim call Bob?

Wait, so what was the answer? Trevor's answer is clever ("Wrong" house), but doesn't explain why you then say "Once again his call didn't go through," since he would have actually reached Bob the first time.
